Crowd-Friendly Beach House
For holidays or hanging out, this
relaxed family refuge has lots of
space to share in the fun.
An open concept layout, combined with a unified color palette and furnishings style, make this Seaside, Florida, vacation home a crowd-pleaser. While rooms aren't huge, furniture is arranged so everyone can spread out in the same space, often with lounging and dining spots side-by-side. Furniture is informal, with easy-care slipcovers, sink-in seats, and distressed finishes that can tolerate heavy use.
Throughout the house, simple curtain panels or wood shutters (or in some cases, bare windows) keep the look clean. Two modestly-sized master suites offer a bit of privacy in a house designed to hold many. Even the kids have their own bunk room--smartly arranged to
maximize beds and storage.
